Blueprint For Destruction


They began to accuse Him, saying, “We found this man misleading our nation, opposing payment of taxes to Caesar, and saying that he himself is the Messiah, a king.”

~Luke 22:2 {CSB}


When the debate is lost, slander becomes the tool of the loser.


When someone hates another person and wants to destroy them, slander seems to be the weapon of choice; especially for those who lack integrity and character like the democratic party. They didn’t think twice about slandering Robert Bork and of course their latest victim was Roy Moore. The media slandered Dan Quayle and did the same to Sarah Palin. Their diabolical theory is: keep telling the lie over and over until the ignorant masses begin saying, “Where there is smoke, there has to be fire.” No, this propaganda ploy did not originate with Hitler although he believed and practiced the same scheme; it comes from the devil. I hate to admit it, but slander works. The devil has been using this method for ages. He is the father and the mastermind of all slander.

Before Pilate, the Jews accused Jesus of of three things: [1] Misleading the Nation, [2] Opposing payment of taxes to Caesar, and [3] Saying that He was the Messiah. Two of the three are blatant lies. Of course the third accusation is a statement of fact: Jesus is the Messiah. As Socrates said, When you don’t have the intellect to win the debate nor the character to admit your ignorance, you resort to slander. It is a cheap and sleazy response. Slander comes up a lot in scripture. Every true servant of God has suffered from the ill effects of slander. People who resort to slander are ignorant and short-sighted. In verse 34 of this same chapter, Jesus prayed for his persecutors, “Father forgive them, because they do not know what they are doing.” Truer words have never been spoken. Jesus said in Matthew 12:36, “Every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment.” Slanders are so obsessed with eliminating their target that they throw truth out the window and resort to lies: thus they forget their accountability to God. The slanderous may win short term as they did with Quayle, Palin and Moore but eventually they will stand before the real Supreme Court.

People today do not believe in God’s wrath. The world thinks that God is dripping with undiscerning love. They even think He loves sin and evil like abortion and homosexuality to mention a couple. They have no regard for Jeremiah’s prophecy or for the word of God in general. In Jeremiah 10:10 the bible says–But the LORD is the true God; He is the living God and the everlasting King. At His wrath the earth will tremble, And the nations will not be able to endure His indignation. Jesus was able to pray for his tormentors because He understood His Father’s great wrath. He knew  these idiots were invoking His Father’s wrath: this is why and how He had compassion on them. These weather related storms that terrify us are merely dim reflections of God’s terrible wrath. Slander is popular because there seems to be no accountability for doing it but this is an illusion, there will be accountability.

Have you paid close attention to the words in the Battle Hymn of the Republic [not democracy]…

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord
He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored
He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword
His truth is marching on
Glory, Glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
His truth is marching on
And James Russel Lowell’s PRESENT CRISIS also comes to mind: 

Truth forever on the scaffold, Wrong forever on the throne— Yet that scaffold sways the future, and, behind the dim unknown, Standeth God within the shadow, keeping watch above his own.

The slanderous lie may win the day but TRUTH will win the battle. Before God has His angels throw Jesus persecutors {those who mocked Him at the cross} into hell, He will play back their evil words. They will stand before him and listen to their slanderous lies and hateful slurs. While in college, I took a course in Physical Science. It was there that I learned the horrible truth for me and others. Spoken words never die. Everything you and I have ever spoken aloud is bouncing around in outer space. If man can invent a tape recorder; do you doubt God’s ability to play back every idle or hateful word we’ve ever said. This is why Jesus prayed for these poor fools: He saw their end, the wrath to come.

  • A word of encouragement to those who are taking a stand on the Nike issue or any other issue: LIBERALS are idiots. Perhaps I should say “ignorant” but it amounts to the same thing. You cannot reason with them and they are not interested in the truth. They live is a subjective world, a world of lofty ideas and quixotic dreams. They are incurable romantics living in an ivory tower–they would not know reality if it bit them on the neck. I have them in my family and I suppose there is at least one in every family. Jesus loved them and so must we but we do not let them discourage us or mold us into their twisted image. If you are a liberal and claim to be a follower of Christ: You are deceived. Your views should be counter to those of the world. If you think like the world; you are most likely of the world and the world is no friend of God. It’s all in the bible: read it!
  • We got a little shower tonight {Friday} while I was in Athens cutting grass. I enjoy cutting grass but this time of year, there is a lot of dust and that is hard on my system.
  • Small Groups have been canceled: Dr. Jack will be preaching LORD willing. It seems like it has been months since I’ve seen our friends at DBC. We are looking forward to it.
